The President of Turkmenistan congratulated the participants in the ceremony of launching the events to be held in honor of Anew becoming the cultural capital of the Turkic world

Today, the ceremony of launching the activities planned for the declaration of the ancient city of Anew as the "Cultural Capital of the Turkic World" in 2024 by the International Organization of Turkish Culture (TURKSOY) is being held. On this occasion, the President of Turkmenistan, Serdar Berdimuhamedov, congratulated the participants of the event. In his congratulation published in "Turkmenistan" newspaper, the Turkmen leader states: "Dear participants of the event! Dear guests! I heartily congratulate you on the ceremony of launching the activities to be held on the occasion of the declaration of Anew as the "Cultural Capital of the Turkish World" by the International Organization of Turkish Culture (TURKSOY) in 2024. Nowadays, the cooperation between the independent and eternally neutral Turkmenistan and the countries of the world and prestigious international organizations is increasingly developed. Our stable state is committed to the legal status of permanent neutrality and successfully carries out large-scale activities aimed at strengthening peace and brotherly relations in the region and the world. We attach great importance to our cultural and humanitarian relations with the countries of the world, especially the countries of the Turkish world, within the framework of the cultural diplomacy that is continuously conducted in this area.

Dear participants!

TURKSOY has declared 2024 as the "Year of Magtymguly Pyragy, the Great Poet and Thinker of the Turkic World" and the city of Anew as the "Cultural Capital of the Turkic World". The fact that these glorious Eastern events coincide with the 300th anniversary of the birth of the great thinker and classic poet Magtymguly Pyragy has a special meaning. Magtymguly is a wise poet who widely praises friendship, unity, peace, humanitarianism in his poems and has a place in the hearts of mankind. Today, his wisdom-filled works are resounding loudly in Turkish-speaking and international countries as songs of unity and brotherhood. Declaring 2024 as the "Ocean of Wisdom Magtymguly Pyragy Year" in Turkmenistan is also a clear indication that thanks to the deep respect of the national leader of the Turkmen people, Hryman Arkadag, for the wise poet, the glory of the sage Pyragy is being raised more and more in the whole world. Dear citizens! The city of Anew, which occupies a unique place in the glorious history of the Turkmen people, is one of the ancient cities that contain national cultural and historical monuments. Excavations carried out in 1904 in the archaeological mounds of Anew revealed a lot of valuable information about the agricultural culture that spread there during the Eneolithic period. During the excavations, in the cultural layers of the monument belonging to this period, along with the remains of walls of ancient buildings, labor tools, ceramic products, grains of white wheat were also discovered. The construction of the National White Wheat Museum of Turkmenistan in Anew is inseparably connected with this fact. After these discoveries, the archeological culture of the Eneolithic period of the region, under the name of "Anew culture", shocked the scientific community of the world. In the middle of the 20th century, several other monuments belonging to the Anew culture were discovered. In the Middle Ages, Anew Castle, located along the Great Silk Road, became a prosperous town. Today, the city of Anew is growing rapidly, and buildings for cultural and life purposes are constantly being built here.
